, and that's been brought to us by the kind of tax policies that romney now is at very kateing and that obama has kept in place by keeping those budget-busting bush tax cuts as part of our system these four years. neither one of them will talk about our incarceration rate in this country. it's a huge problem. we have 2--almost 2.4 million people behind bars and there are racist implication there is with the war on drugs, which is a completely failed policy. neither of these parties will talk about it, but it impacts millions of people. we have a half million people now in prison and jail because of drug offenses. when the war on drugs was first commenced, there were fewer than 40,000, now there are over 500,000 people behind bars. three out of four people, although blacks and whites do drugs at the same rate. the studies show that. three out of four people imprisoned on drug offenses are black people. 50%-- >> cenk: we're out of time, but i got to ask you one more question. president obama is he a liberal a centrist or in your opinion is he right wing. >> i think he's way right of center. thi

't know precisely how the obama administration proposes to raise the top corporate rate to on 28%. we don't know how mitt romney proposes to lower the corporate rate to 20%, 25%, i forget which one, because they haven't identified the loopholes. >> but that's linchpin of the whole campaign is around taxes, is around lowering taxes and is around -- >> actually, it's not. actually, it's not because if you remember, andrew, in his convention speech, he didn't especially mention his individual tax cut. and he went out on the road last week and said by the way, i'm going to cut tax rates, but don't expect a big tax cut because i'm going to take away deductions. so romney in fact and i've talked to romney's strategists about this, they know that voters don't actually believe that you're going to have a big net tax cut for anybody. it's not credible. >> the linchpin of the entire plan is to raise taxes on people 250 or above, which does nothing for the definite sit, does nothing with entitlements. not only are you not talking details, all you have is raising tax on people that have money and tal
that barack obama's locked it up. i'm surprised by this, because the media's addicted to one thing, ratings your only bias your american media has is towards ratings. i'm surprised when i see the media abandoning this horse race and saying barack obama is very close to the electoral votes. we want the to know what you think. mark you're up extremely early. you're on the bill press show. >> i'm an overnight security guard. >> right i've done it before, worked lots of overtime. welcome. >> i wanted to say real quick your commenting on the thing in fox news in california. >> and phoenix news. >> it's not really that unusual. there was a gentleman that i can't remember his name, but he called a press conference i believe in ohio. >> in the 1980's. >> bud dwyer. >> and he shot himself at the press conference. i would comment on that, that if it bleeds, it leads. >> in fairness, you don't cover a press conference because you think someone is going to commit violence on themselves. it's a bit of a different scenario. >> fair enough. >> a lot of networks refused to air the footage but some charmers

, in these last weeks to get across the notion that reducing tax rates and improving corporate tax competitiveness, that, those are things that can help the economy. i don't see anything in the obama campaign that will help the economy. he has a debate, they have a debate on concerns wednesday. do you think that he should begin the debate by focusing on his tax plan? >> wiser political people than i will have to make that call but i would certainly think it would be an opportunity to explain to the public that cutting taxes is a way of encouraging people to invest, to expand, hire and that's really what the economy needs. david: finally, the federal reserve board, you have been critical of the federal reserve board and its actions. some people say ben bernanke says, while there is no inflation there is not necessarily an economic cost to doing all of the bond buying they have been doing, the money printing they have been doing. is there a cost and if so, what is it? >> i think there is a longer term risk. i think right now it is doing very little good. lowering interest rates at a time when mortga

standing in as president obama. for president obama's part, he has got to explain to voters why he deserves another four years when the economic -- the unemployment rate, remember, is still above 8%. so that is his challenge. he is here preparing in henderson, nevada, and i can tell you advisers say his big goal is really to give sharper, crisper answers and to not come off as too professorial. >> one man who isn't afraid to raise expectations is new jersey governor chris christie who says we will wake up on thursday morning with the race turned upside down, but given the very latest polling, particularly in the swing states k a single debate really swing things in the way mr. christie suggests? >> reporter: well, martin, i think if you talk to political analysts and also advisers on both sides, they say that this idea that one debate is going to be a game changer just simply isn't the case. in fact, our colleague john harwood had a great article about this in "the new york times" where he points out there are really few debates in history that have done that. one was the debate between nix
. there is a reason congress' approval rating is as low as it has ever been and there is a reason obama is breaking away in his lead over mitt romney. he worked with oil and gas companies to increase the 14-year high in oil production. he proposed bipartisan solutions on a number of things. there are certain things congress won't pass in an election year. megyn: thank you both so. up next we have big news from washington and massive layoffs across the defense industry and the layoff notices that were about to go out. megyn: defense contractor lockheed martin confirming it will back off plans to issue layoff work notices to workers days before the election in november. the company said it would be forced by law to issue the notices due to the automatic cuts to the defense spending. but then came the arguments from washington to hold off on those layoff notices. melissa francis joins knee now. she is the host of "money." so the feds contact lockheed martin and say don't issue those in the. >> these are your tax dollars at work. the labor department says we know you are supposed to send out those pink
in the wake of president obama's healthcare law. connell: adam shapiro has more on this. adam: talking about the hospital readmission reduction program part of the patient protection affordable healthcare act starting today hospitals which have a readmission rate for patients who have had heart attacks heart failure or pneumonia if that readmission rate is higher than the national average than those hospitals will be fined in fiscal year 13, 1%, 14, 2%, up to 3% in 2015. the fine is withholding of medicare reimbursements. the hospital association is worried that part of this is going to be misleading because some patients elderly patients don't understand their discharge orders or fail to see a primary care doctor and that explains some of the readmission rates, but the centers for medical -- medicare and medicaid services says this will save u.s. taxpayers just this year roughly 270 million dollars. and the cbo said that it would save taxpayers 7.1 billion dollars by 2019. it is going to force hospitals to make those discharge orders, connell and dagen, a lot easier to understand. but again
president obama to continue to swell the scale of government and, crush generations of unborn americans. that should be his focus. instead he is talking about tax expenditures and how to close loopholes and broadening marginal tax rates while reducing them. a lot of people are going, what the hell is he talking about? and in fact he needs to get focused now. melissa: here's my question because you're not the only one saying this. >> i know that. i know that. i hate it when i'm not original. melissa: maybe you said it first. >> no, i didn't. >> so is no one saying this to the romney campaign? are they just not hearing it? where is the diskoshth because it is obvious to all of us out in the audience. >> if nothing frightens governor romney, this should. what i see here is reminiscent of 2008 and senator mccain, is everyone in the country knew what he should be doing except senator mccain. now that is either because he had some of the lousiest advisors on the planet or he refused to listen. we're here four years later with a candidate in precisely the same position. if he is convinced he i
up hope they could find work. so obama has a strategy for re- election which is encouraging even more people to stop looking for what. >> but theuestion is not whether the and employment rate is 8.1% or 8.3%. the question is whether it is better than when the president took office? >> absolutely not. when you have the worst employment participation in 30 years -- in the three and a half years of president obama tenure, gdp growth has been 1.5%. historically, for the last seven years, it has been 3.7%. we have had less than half the historical average pared by contrast, in 1984gdp growth was 7.2% print what does that mean when the economy is growing, when small businesses are prospering? they are creating new jobs and people are able to find work. it creates opportunity for everyone. what we have unfortunately is small business after small business facing crushing uncertainty. the single biggest question you hear from business leaders is they don't know between obamacare and dodd-frank and the offshore drilling moratorium in texas. but entrepreneurs expressed to me is the sense of grea
're right, president obama can't make things look hunky dory, because they're not in the economy. so mitt romney according to some political analysts will continue to hammer away at that 8% unemployment rate and like the stagnant nature of our economy. >> and he should. the problem is mitt romney saying these things. and it's not just about the 47% that was mentioned in that speech. you have to remember, he also talked about if i was perhaps latino, it would be easier for me, i would be winning this thing already. he said a bunch of other things in that video that this is going to undermine his ability to really attack the president on domestic policies and seen as believable. because we saw mitt romney talking in private about how he really feels. so what he says on stage is going to sound hollow because we saw him behind the scenes. and that's his greatest obstacle about the whole video. it's not about the numbers and trying to break it down, it's the sentiment behind the entire video which was condescending, which came from a place of elitism. >> okay. he just misspoke. >> no, i think,
for them. what is given with lower rates will be taken away with loss of deductions. and, of course, there will be pressure on some of the health care promises made under the president obama's plan. that's the toughest question. that's the question that will decide the election and one reason that probably mitt romney has some trouble in the polls right now. >> speaking of the polls, and there are a lot of polls, you know this, and especially a lot of republicans saying, you know, hey, these polls that show the president leading in these multiple swing states, no, they say they're bogus, they skew democratic, i heard paul ryan complaining about the media yesterday, we were reminded of this guy running for re-election in 1992. remember this? >> if you haven't detected i'm a little sore at the national media. let me tell you something -- i better be careful. i better not say that. i got -- they're mad at me anyway. i love my favorite bumper sticker, annoy the media, re-elect bush. >> oh, the media, david frum, complaining about the media, did not help bush one. he lost his bid for re-
, if the dividend rate goes up to the marginal income tax rate, this market will give back some of the rally and it will limit the upside for next year. >> is there a point at which you see obama in the polls and you say actually now i believe that we are going to get the tax hikes and the market should fall? there must be a watershed quite soon as we head towards particularly what happens in the house and the senate. >> our focus has been on the senate. we think that's what's going to mostly influence the outcome. i hope there's appetite to see the rates low. i don't see a benefit from raising them. i would call a coin toss on the senate outcome. but wiser minds will see the wisdom of helping the fed in its efforts to stimulate asset prices by not onerously raising taxes on the most important asset class other than homes. >> have you actually calculated a number? you said it would give back some of the rally. but is there a number or a percentage? >> 12-month price target is 1,500. we've written in our research that 1,600 would be a reasonable 2013 end. i need to see an acceleration in glob
. unfortunately, we are hurting. this congressional district as a 10.5% unemployment rate. my opponent, mr. enyart, who appears to be fascinated by me, does not seem to understand people are hurting. he sings think things are getting better under president obama. every county in this district for the last four months has seen its unemployment go up. the state of illinois today saw its unemployment go from 8.7% to 91%. the illinois has the highest foreclosure rate in the nation. we just saw in franklin county another company shutting down, we see pat quinn, the governor of the state, a strong ally of my ally mr. enyart, shutting down the facilities of southern illinois so that he can transfer those jobs to cook county. we need an election official that will stand up for all of southern illinois, the entire congressional district, and will represent the policies and plans we need to put the ball back to work. i haven't talked the talk about these issues. we did not talk about tax credits for companies or individuals. we talk about real solutions for the real problem we're facing because the people i
